Try The Pink Hair Trend Streekers Review


The pink hair trend is still going strong in Hollywood. Have you seen Nicole Richie’s new dip-dyed pink tips? She revealed her new hot pink color on Tuesday, posting on her blog as well as her Twitter page with the caption “Tickled Pink!” Nicole is now among a growing group of stars brightening their hair with vibrant, eye-catching color. January Jones, Ashley Tisdale and Lauren Conrad, all tried out the trend earlier this year.

Looking to get a similar pop of color for Summer? Try out these temporary options at home with Streekers ($11.95 at www.streekers.com) to make an impact with trend setting streaks that wash out the next day or if you want a dip-dyed look like Nicole, reach for hair chalk. Check out the chalking tips from Edward Tricomi, co-owner of Warren-Tricomi Salons below!


 Get The Look At Home: BRIGHT TRENDY STREEKS

With a rainbow of shades, Streekers allow you to change your look in an instant. Each candy-colored highlighting hue is true, temporary hair color.  Streekers shows up vibrantly on blonde or highlighted hair, and as subtle highlights on darker hair.
*Style hair as desired, mousse, gel, and other styling products can be used prior to applying Streekers. 
*Pull out sections you would like to highlight and apply the formula from root to tip, allow to dry. Drying time is less than one minute. I suggest creating face framing multi-colored highlights or adding streaks underneath your hair for unexpected pops of colors.
*Hair spray can be used over Streekers. 
*For 2-3 color effects, wait a minute between colors.
*To remove color, simply shampoo as usual

Get The Look At Home: DIP-DYED ENDS WITH HAIR CHALK

Chalking is a technique Edward Tricomi, celebrity stylist and co-owner of Warren-Tricomi salons is quite familiar with. Edward believes chalking is great for a special look, totally safe and easy to try at home. He suggests you choose colors that stand out against the existing haircolor. “I prefer dominant colors because they pop,” he shares.

    *Wet your pastel chalk and twist the hair as you apply directly onto the sections you want colored. The texture from twisting makes the chalk release more pigment.
    *If you are a blonde, be wary of wetting the chalk first as it could deposit too much color and not wash out with one shampoo. Consider chalking without the water or test a small piece first to be sure.
    *Always brush the excess powder out after chalking each piece.
    *Finish with hairspray to secure the color.
    *Shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo after chalking.
    *Conditioning treatment is a must after you wash out your chalk. You must replenish the moisture that may get sucked out with chalking.

Another way to chalk hair is to drop a piece of chalk -- the bigger the piece, the more vibrant the color -- into a spray bottle of water and allow the chalk to break down completely. Then you can spray the pieces of hair you want colored.



I have always wanted to try Streekers, so what better way then to try it with HOT PINK! When I first opened the package I noticed the Streeker bottle was really sleek looking. The tip of the applicator is very smooth and applies easily to your hair. My little girl has darker hair than me, my hair is blonde. So, I decided to put it in both of our hair to see the difference in the color. In my little girl's hair it wasn't as noticeable, so I did a few applications which really helped brighten the color. Although, with my hair one application was very bright and noticeable. 

As with any hair dye, I do get a little apprehensive as to whether the product will come out in a simple wash. I actually ended up being very impressed with how well it washed out. I didn't have to rub or wash 2 or 3 times. One wash and it was gone. You would never know that it was in your hair. I also didn't have any issues once the Streeker was dry, it didn't rub off on my skin or clothes. This is a big plus. These are amazing. I have to get my little girl and myself some more colors.
